EXCLUSIVE : THE LAST ALASKANS Premiere Sneak Peek Clip

Heimo Korth The Last Alaskans

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is the largest protected wilderness in the U.S, and in 1980, the U.S. Government banned new human occupation from the refuge, leaving only seven permits for families and trappers. These modern-day pioneers return in an all-new season of Discovery Channel’s THE LAST ALASKANS with more drive and passion than ever before. This season, they face obstacles brought on by the unforgiving environment, including rising predator competition and the aftermath of forest fires, as well as the deeply personal challenges of trying to raise small children in this world and even battling life-threatening illnesses. These families and trappers will be challenged like never before as they look to continue the unique life they’ve built in the refuge. THE LAST ALASKANS premieres Sunday, November 25 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

Tune-in: Season premiere Sunday, November 25 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Watch live or catch up on the Discovery Go app.

No one knows the refuge like Bob Harte. After 40 years in the Alaskan Wilderness, he calls it his country, but due to the return of his cancer, Bob must move away from the refuge and into town with his daughter and granddaughter. This season, we will follow Bob’s hard-fought battle to the end and get the chance to say goodbye. Bob’s journey in the refuge allowed him to live free – this was his home and where his heart will always be.

For Heimo and Edna Korth, this season brings an opportunity they have dreamt of for years: their daughter Krin and her family will attempt to survive a winter in the refuge. Heimo has raised all three of his daughters here, and he hopes for Krin to continue the tradition he and Edna have built over the decades. Heimo will do all he can to pass on the torch of survival to Krin, her husband Scott and their young son Colby, but it will come down to the success of their hunting and trapping season to convince her.

There’s also another new face this season, as Tyler and Ashley Selden bring their baby girl Sidney into the refuge. With a new and dependent member, the Seldens look to improve their property and try to turn it into a functioning homestead that can support a family, but they face the challenge of balancing the demands of being parents, as well as providers for their newest member.

Charlie Jagow faces one of his toughest challenges this season in the aftermath of the summer fires. He assesses the damage from a bird’s-eye view, which reveals miles of black forest. Charlie now must re-establish 40 years’ worth of family traplines, which could potentially take two decades to rebuild. It’s an impossible task, but with the help of maps and instructions Bob left behind, Charlie will follow in Bob’s footsteps and look to come out on top this trapping season.

The obstacles of this season, though significant, serve a great purpose for the families – they have a rebirth in the refuge. Through ingenuity, hard work and a bit of luck, the families work to overcome and rebuild their homes, trails and lives for the success of their future in the Alaskan wilderness.

THE LAST ALASKANS is produced for Discovery Channel by Half Yard Productions, a Red Arrow Studios Company. For Half Yard Productions, executive producers are Abby Greensfelder, Sean Gallagher and John Jones. For Discovery Channel, executive producers are Joseph Schneier and Michael Gara and associate producer is Emily Baustien.

Episode Description: Hit the Ground Hunting – Heimo stalks his best hunting grounds and Tyler tracks caribou as the pressure is on to get a big kill before the harsh Alaskan winter takes hold. Charlie inspects his traplines but damage from summer wildfires puts his season in jeopardy.

EXCLUSIVE : MASTER OF ARMS Sneak Peek Clip

Master Of Arms Discovery-Channel

Over the course of history, skilled craftsmen helped shape the fate of mankind by constructing the most iconic weaponry known to man. Inspired by age-old traditions, Discovery Channel is gathering the best builders to battle it out in a head-to-head competition to re-create the armaments that have changed the course of history. MASTER OF ARMS premieres Friday, November 2 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery.

Centuries ago, the greatest empires leaned on the backs of weapon craftsmen to create the blades, bows and ballistics that would win wars and alter history forever. Now, modern weapons smiths will put their technical knowledge and ingenuity to the test giving insight into age-old building techniques — and the traditions, methods and craftsmanship that define them.

Each episode, three builders will face-off in two historical challenges that call upon era-specific weaponry, from the firearms of the frontier to the blades of the Vikings. But these aren’t just quickly fabricated weapons – each tool will be heavily researched and crafted pieces of art.

In each episode, blade, ballistic and bow weapons will be rigorously tested as well as judged on their design, historical accuracy, and abilities. With an elimination after each challenge, only one smith will walk away with the grand prize of $10,000 and be crowned the “Master of Arms.”

MASTER OF ARMS is produced for Discovery Channel by Matador Content. For Matador Content, Todd Lubin, Jay Peterson and Brian Nashel are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Matthew Vafiadis and Bill Howard are executive producers and Cameron Doyle is Coordinating Producer.

Now Parker has decided to try his luck in Guyana, a gold mining hot spot. Last year alone, Guyana produced over 750 million dollars’ worth of gold.

But with all this golden potential, even the most seasoned miners have failed, including Todd Hoffman.

Once again, Parker is joined by his foreman and close friend Rick Ness to help him mine; survival expert and wilderness guide Karla Ann to help keep them all alive; and long-time friend and adventure cameraman Sam Brown, the man responsible for filming their expedition.

EXCLUSIVE : BERING SEA GOLD Sneak Peek Clip

The new summer season dives in with the Alaska mining crew practicing riskier strategies and using larger, updated equipment on old grounds to tackle their biggest endeavor yet: mining the most ever Bering Sea gold. “Mr. Gold” Shawn Pomrenke has his work cut out for him with the arrival of the largest dredge in Nome: Myrtle Irene. With competitors Ken and Dave rocking the Nome mining foundation, Shawn’s title of “Mr. Gold” could be up for grabs. Can Shawn’s Christine Rose handle the pressure and come out on top?

Meanwhile, Captain Kris Kelly has set his sights on taking over The Bluff with his newer, smaller, amphibious dredge the Reaper. But his plans are threatened by a slew of encroaching miners in The Bluff’s now lawless waters.

Coming off a tough winter season, Emily Riedel, the first and only female dredge owner, seeks redemption with the restored Eroica. She will dive deeper than any other operation in the waters, but with the relentless weather conditions of the Bering Sea, bringing home the gold will be a dangerous feat.

And George Young delays mining on his own to prospect for the 600-ton Myrtle Irene. But with the allure of riches too strong, his dredge All About Nuggets is quickly back at sea on the hunt for gold.
